My daughter has expensive taste

On our way home from being grocery shopping today I pulled into a fast food drive-thru (so they could eat while I put away the food) and in front of us was a beautiful red convertible porsche. MB pipes up with "Mom, that's a hot car. I am going to have one like that."

This morning MB and I sat down and made up a menu for the rest of the week. I also had her tell me some of the meals that she would like to have later in the month. I printed off the new food pyramid and talked to her about why we can't have alternating chicken nuggets and hot dogs every night. Then she helped me make a list for our bi-weekly shopping trip.

This afternoon she is going to help me separate the bulk packages down to meal-size packages and prepare the vegetables for the freezer.

I found a neat sausage at the store: chicken, asiago cheese and spinach. My mouth is watering. I believe we will try it tomorrow night with corn on-the-cob.

Tonights menu:

Spinach Salad, Grilled Shrimp & Veggie Kabobs over roasted potatoes (mom & Dad)

Reg. Salad, Fish Sticks, Grilled Veggies and Fruit Kabobs (Girls)

I just love this time of year with all the fresh fruit and veggies, not to mention it is wonderful to be able to use the grill almost every night so I do not have to heat up the kitchen.
